A treasury of myth presenting the principal hero-lays of the great epic cycles of the Teutonic Middle Ages. These timeless tales of love and war formed the basis for a vast body of Western literature and art, and encompass the legends of the Knights of the Round Table and their exalted quest for the Holy Grail; the saga of Beowulf; the Hegeling and Nibelung legends, which inspired Wagner's Ring cycle; and the legend of Lohengrin, the source of Parzival and Wagner's opera.
